Toronto Star Allows Crazy Person To Write Column

This is perhaps the single most advanced case of Harper Derangement Syndrome ever observed in Canada’s Media.

Why Harper (and friends) are a bigger threat than IS: Burman

  • And the editors of the Toronto Star wonder why no one wants to read their rag.

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      Just last week the Star announced they were expanding blahblah sections in their paper, increasing the price, and now making available to Monday newsstand buyers the ‘World Weekly’ section previously only available to home subscribers on Saturday.

      In other words, newsstand buyers are now privy to Burman’s weekly bullshit in the ‘World Weekly’ section.

      • David Murrell

        Which brings me to a small anecdote: here in Fredericton I buy the paper editions of the two local newspapers, on Saturday, to read for breakfast and during the day (off).

        Anyways, this past Saturday (August 16) for some reason at 9 am the two local papers were not on the newsstands — and only the Globe and Mail was available. I have been boycotting this wretched, anti-Semitic pro-Islamic terrorist rag for some time now, but I needed something to read while eating my McDonald’s breakfast. So I bought the paper. “That will be $5.10” the person at the counter said. $5.10 for a Saturday paper!

        So the Islamic Star is not the only paper increasing their prices. And yes, the Globe this past Saturday reeked with continual anti-Conservative propaganda. This will be the last Saturday I will buy a Globe. Anyone spending $5.10 on a newspaper these days has to be crazy (or an addict like me).

      • They’re desperate.

  • David Murrell

    Tony Burman — collecting his pension money from CBC News and al Jeezera — simply does not care about the massive war crimes by the Islamic State. It is bad enough that Burman endorses Islamist obscenities, but it is sad that this nasty fascist has powerful media to spread his simple-minded hatred.

    • Martin B

      And he teaches Journalism at Ryerson, making sure that future generations will carry on spreading his simple-minded hatred after he’s kicked the bucket.

      • LauraS

        And THAT is why the MSM can’t be trusted. They are taught by sleazy activists like this guy. These folks are entrenched in newsrooms and classrooms across the country–and it’s why blogs like this one are so vital to those who want to be informed on the issues affecting Canada.

        • Maggat

          Hear, Hear!

  • Martin B

    Harooon is gone but his spirit lives on in the Red Star opinion pages.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Some kinds of crazy cannot be fixed, just like stupid. BurmanBurnan is both that special kind of unfixable crazy as well as genuinely irreparably stupid.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I have met Tony Burman on several occasions. He would never have survived in the real world, let alone the world of Canada’s bumfucking MSM. Burman is a “lightweight” in more ways than one. He’ll bleed out nicely one day – maybe right out there on Yonge Street – when he crosses/fails the wrong jihadi. It’s inevitable.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    It’s too bad that the Star didn’t use that online title in their print edition.
    Because this week’s Saturday Star was dripping with anti-Tory sentiment.
    It’s a wonder they didn’t just print the Saturday paper with (Liberal) red and (SpeNDP) orange inks.

    Tony Burman is a pathetic clown. Plain.and.simple

    Al-Jazeera, CBC, Toronto Star, and Ryerson U- Tony BUrman is the Michael Jordan of brain-dead apologists for Islam.

    • Petey the First

      I have to keep telling people over and over again, Ryerson isn’t a university.

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

        Yeah, I couldn’t be bothered with even typing out the full word ‘university’.

        ‘Rye High’…..

    • If not drunk then he’s evil stupid.

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir


        Anymore, I just assume Burman is a convert. 😉

    • disqus_W6sf

      He sounds like some of the nuts I know in Halifax who compare Harper to Europe in 1939, and these are educated health professionals making these types of claims.

  • Maggat

    Good suffering Jesus. Three paragraphs and I was close to chuffing my cookies. The three leaders that are trying, well I not sure about Cameron, and that bilge from the Star? Gads we’re in trouble.

  • Everyone Else

    Burman is saying the expertise lies with public opinion, and not the experts.

    Because people in some countries believe climate change is the biggest problem, then it must be. Because people in some countries believe jihad isn’t a big problem, then it’s not.

    It’s astonishing someone with such shallow views used to be Head of CBC News.

  • wallyj180

    ” countries in the developing world — such as Latin America, Africa, Asia — regard climate change as the greatest threat. ‘

    A few things wrong with using that statement for much.

    Islamic countries don’t see returning to rule by Mohammed as a threat. Colour me shocked.
    Developing countries will benefit by wealth distribution because of ‘climate change’.

    Developing countries do not have much access to the internet. Many have never heard of ISIS.

    What a foolish column !
    The religion of islam is a real and immediate threat.
    The ‘climate change/global warming catastrophe OTOH, is a dubious theory.

    • He must have been drunk, nothing else explains it.

  • Oracle9

    Mentioned the horrors in the ME to a (lefty) friend (most around here are hard leftists), and was told that’s nuthin’ – and that we have five years left before we cook to death. This is pretty much the majority belief here on at least the left coast of fundamentalist Canada.

  • kkruger71

    Why does Harper keep saying that? Why do all three of them keep saying that? Why is that a constant theme they keep bringing up?
    Love how it never enters his column that maybe, just maybe, they actually believe it.

  • Al_the_Fish

    Why are the people of Turkey more concerned with climate change than ISIS? Because the muslim majority would welcome ISIS. #TheresNoSuchThingAsModerateIslam

  • ontario john

    But the truly awful thing evil Harper did today according to Mulcair, is he didn’t attend the homosexual parade in Montreal. Nice shot of Trudeau walking with Duceppe at the parade.

  • DMB

    So many crazy people who write for the Red Star it will become more difficult for them to stand out!

    • sanwin

      To be fair, Coren is probably the kookiest right now.

      • BillyHW

        He has just gone nutty.

  • JohnfromToronto

    Does anybody take seriously a guy who shilled for the Qataris? And as is usual with the Star when they don’t want responses to one of their wacko columnists they don’t even open up comments.

  • BillyHW

    From Tony Burman to Linda McQuaig to Michael Coren, they are all crazy over at the Toronto Star.

    P.S. They close the comments when they know they are lying.
